We arrived @ 5:45 pm on a Thursday night! Lovely scent of food and unbelievable decorations from the holidays still up - so lovely and festive! Seated promptly. Lovely server - thank you Jade! (They decorate at all seasons - Valentine's Day next) We enjoyed the meat spaghetti and asked to share the order between a couple. Costs an extra... More

Have been here a number of times and keep going back. The staff are very attentive and the service is fairly fast. Food is exceptional especially the pasta dishes and the pizzas - love the Monday/Tuesday special when these are discounted. Give them a try you will be happy you did.

Took my family here for the dinner and a movie special. $19.95. We ordered the spaghetti, lasagna and a pizza from the special menu. Worst pasta ever. Soggy noodles, watery sauce and a flavor that can only be described as chef boyardee..most disorganized servers..lineups in the waiting area and half the tables empty. And apparently 3 hostesses can't figure it... More

Very long wait,, almost 40 minutes. For a seat. Then another 30 minutes for food. Which was not very tasty. Kids Mac n Cheese was pretty much tasteless,, as was my Spanakopita. (I am no greek goddess. and certainly no chef,, but mine is 3times better!) I did not sample every ones dinners, but judging by the leftovers on the... More

The vega table pasta had lots of veggies in it. The sales were a good size. It all tastes good and the service was fine.

Our group was partially served their salad and the two with soup and salad orders sat empty handed while the rest of their group ate their salad and then were the first to be served their main courses. Had we known how bad the salty, gravy style clam chowder was and the limp caeser salad too heavy with dressing-- we... More

Went here with other siblings and their spouses. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Our waitress was really good except that she made a mistake on one of our orders and then forgot to refill the drink order for a little while and had to be reminded. Overall it was a nice evening.

We went for a family Sunday dinner. Started with the onion rings, Buffalo wings and potato skins. The rings were ok, greasy and some undercooked. The potato skins were great, just cut thin and a small portion for the price. The wings were not good, flavorless inside. We ordered the Havarti jalapeno burger with fries, a chicken quesadilla, and a... More

Our first time visit.. went with some friends who had been there before. Wasn't bad, but nothing remarkable about the place or the food. Prices seemed a bit high. A smallish pizza shouldn't cost 20 dollars.
